Hey Anna plays Mercury on 9.24, tours with The Boxer Rebellion in the fall

Can’t say goodbye to the warm summer breeze and cool ocean waves? Just put on those headphones and turn up Run Koko, Hey Anna’s sunny, nostalgic indie-pop album from 2015. In just a few seconds, a reverb-drenched guitar will open up the sky, spacey synths will sparkle like sun on waves, drums and bass will paint the horizon with a delicate, eclectic groove, and dreamy mezzo vocals will flux and flow like the sea - and if you need help visualizing that look no further than the video for opening track "Island." We are streaming below their darker one (and set in a more familiar city environment) for shoegazy single 'Anaphaze.". Get a taste of the band's soothing soundscape on September 24 at the Mercury Lounge, before they sail off on a three week, fall US tour with The Boxer Rebellion.

Emily Reo takes her playful "Rainbow Pop" to Baby's All Right on 10.06

Some of the most imaginative music is created when musical instruments are treated like toys, rather than serious objects that require a lot of practicing to be mastered, implying that conventional instrumental technique might actually harness creativity. If that's the philosophical premise of punk and post punk, since the late '90s the DIY movement has been slowly extending its influence to other musical genres. NYC songwriter and programmer Emily Reo seem to share this approach, crafting whimsical pop songs based on simple but carefully chosen programmed sounds and drum beats, and featuring melodic vocals that, more often than not, are filtered through electronic harmonizers. The result is rather peculiar: her music is playful and ethereal to the point of sounding almost abstract - so much so that we are tempted to label it "Rainbow Pop."
Even though Reo hasn't released any new material in three years, she'll have a rather prestigious show at Baby's All Right on October 6th. Check out the video for aptly named single 'Rainbow Road.'

New Track: "Who Said It First" (Demo) - Kississippi

Matriculating from awakening instrumentation, “Who Said It First”, the new demo from Kississippi, hints at continued future excellence. The tiptoeing intermingling of guitar and keys wraps itself around the intimate vocals, drawing one toward the magnetic warmth. The band is heading out on tour in three weeks so purchase the demo to help make life a bit easier for the group on the road. Kississippi will be performing next in Philly on Wednesday, September 21 at Bourbon & Branch with CLOAKZ and Hodera.

Video Premiere: "Sobering Up" - Very Bad Vibes

“Sobering Up,” the new video that we are premiering today from Very Bad Vibes, a.k.a. Sam Huntington (formerly of The Original Crooks and Nannies), finds the subject beating himself. The footage (shot by Katie Huntington) enlists simple yet effective chalk and sharpie titles, before showcasing the one-sided battering. Simplicity rules the day, and the music’s energetic bounce meshes with the display of exorcising personal demons, pulled back in intensity by the playful placement/use of ketchup. You can find "Sobering Up" opening his debut solo effort, Toothpaste.

New Track: "Wind Whips The Veil" - Heat Thunder

Found on Phoenix, the new EP from Heat Thunder, “Wind Whips The Veil,” immediately takes hold as Joe Montone delivers unencumbered, chilling vocals. Co-produced by Brian Dale Allen Strouse (The Lawsuits), the song steps out from the acoustic-guitar, folk-oriented backdrop, implementing cello, violin and drums, actualizing a dramatic depth. Those earnest outpourings hold one in suspense, stirring up emotions while making a personal plea. (Photo by Wendy McCardle)
